Rare Replay has brought us a...well, rare look at the game that never was, Project Dream.

Way back in 1995, Rare was working on a game called Project Dream for SNES that featured a little boy, Edson, and his dog Dinger fighting a group of pirates. Very few screenshots and no gameplay were ever seen, because the game was scrapped and redeveloped into Banjo Kazooie on the N64.

If you're interested in the history of games or if you're just a big fan of Banjo, this footage and interview with the team is a really neat look at how he came to be.

You've got between now and January 4th to get in on the Steam Sale. Disregard Christmas, acquire games.

Go go go go!

Don't forget, daily and flash deals are a thing of the past, so there's no more waiting for the perfect moment; just get it or don't. If you're wondering why, you can most likely thank the refund system. With refunds in place, people would be able to return a sale item they already bought if they caught it at a lower price later, and that's just bad for business.

Dude, really?

A Siberian man apparently lost his job, his friends, and his wife after playing Fallout 4 for three weeks straight, and now he wants $7,000 for "emotional distress" from Bethesda and the game's Russian localization firm. Sigh.

The man claims he had no idea how addictive and all-encompassing Fallout could be, saying, "If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays." His addiction supposedly also caused him physical duress, as he was not eating or sleeping regularly during his Fallout binge. The case has not yet made it to court, but the man has secured a lawyer willing to take it on.

John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, sat down with VentureBeat to talk about Pokémon Go, and revealed a few new facts that'll get you excited for the game his team is developing with The Pokémon Company.

For starters, Hanke promises the game will be fun even if you don't live in a big city: "If we’re going to build a game that works with location, it has to be fun for people anywhere to play, in small towns as well as San Francisco. If we designed something that only worked in San Francisco, it wouldn’t be a real success. We wanted it to work globally." If you're just passing through a location, you'll still be able to interact with it without fully engaging that place.

Hanke also revealed that the game will feature gyms, as well as loads and loads of wild Pokémon. The goal is to ensure that you'll run into at least one Pokémon within five minutes of leaving your house. I don't know about you, but I'm assuming that means Rattatas everywhere. Rarer Pokémon will obviously be harder to find, and all Pokémon will be location/environment specific, meaning you'll only find water types near water.

But if you're landlocked, fear not; you'll be able to attend events to not only battle, but also trade Pokémon with other players. Even more exciting, you'll be able to join teams. According to Hinke, "there will be teams to join in Pokémon, more than two. Those teams will compete against one another."

Fight me IRL (whenever this game comes out), bros.
